Problem No 1: I have oily roots and dry ends… A common problem that concerns many women is greasiness at the roots and dryness at the hair ends. The solution is given by the new range of L’Oreal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Clay. With 3 types of clay, green, blue and white, it offers incredibly pure roots, without a trace of grease, shiny hair and perfectly hydrated ends. The range has also an innovative product –this is its feature in my opinion-, the first mask (L’Oreal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Clay Mask) [1] which is used before shampooing and we let act just for 5 minutes! We rinse out and wash our hair with L’Oreal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Clay Shampoo [2] that cleanses thoroughly and our hair is clean, shiny and light for 72 hours.

Problem No 2: White hairs have come out and I do not have free time to go to the hairdresser’s… There is no reason to worry, since the smartest hair spray, Hair Touch Up of L’Oreal Professionnel [5] , gives you the solution. The Hair Touch Up covers effectively, quickly and completely the white roots. It offers a natural, consistent and discreet result. It is available in four unique shades and you will definitely find the one which covers your needs only in hair salons with L’Oreal Professionnel products.

Problem No 3: I want to form my curls, but almost all the styling products that I have tried leave my hair feeling sticky… If you are used to forming your curls using foam or mousse, now choose L’Oreal Paris Elnett Satin Creme De Mousse Curls [4]. It is a wonderful product which combines the characteristic, incredibly strong hold of a mousse in combination with the softness of a cream, without leaving the hair sticky.

Problem No 4: My hair is damaged by frequent dyes and the hair dryer and it is breaking off… The solution is in the pharmacy. Phyto Paris and the stunning range of intensive repairing, Phytokeratine Extreme, promise and actually manage to give life to the damaged hair right from the first shampooing. I suggest the Phytokeratine Extreme Shampooing [6] , a cleansing base of plant origin, without sulfates, and the Phytokeratine Extreme Masque [7], a rich and sensual mask which wraps the hair and penetrates immediately into its heart in order to repair and nourish it leaving it fine. You will feel your hair more moisturized, strong and protected. It will become manageable, elastic and silky, with incomparable radiance. The sense of luxury that you will enjoy by applying these products is unsurpassed.

Problem No 5: My hair is weak, brittle and lifeless… I am looking for the right range that will offer me maximum protection against the heat. The absolute care line, Kerastase Resistance, is ideal for us who use obsessively straightening devices and damage our hair due to decapage and other dyeing techniques (so we surely belong to deterioration level 3-4). The Kerastase Bain Therapiste Balm [8] in Shampoo is a hair restructuring and revitalization shampoo-balm, ideal for very damaged hair, since it covers the hair during shampooing and it reduces friction resulting in revitalized, shiny and smooth hair. The biphasic serum, Kerastase Serum Therapiste [9], is a must-have product which offers double restructuring care to very sensitive lengths and ends. It strengthens the hair repairing it in depth and protects it against the heat of the straightening devices, which reach 230 ° C!

The range can be found exclusively in hair salons with Kerastase products.

Problem No 6: I want complete and deep hydration by weightless oil that smooths the hair… The new Dark Oil of Sebastian [3] reconstructs perfectly the hair while it smooths it amazingly. Dark Oil is a light and nutritional care oil with DiffusX technology which penetrates the hair and rebuilds it. Its composition of sandalwood, cedar and Argan oil nourishes the hair from the inside out, offering dazzling shine and volume but also smoothing it.

Dark Oil can be found in selected hair salons in collaboration with Sebastian.
